Arrive as a tourist. Leave as a traveller.

Murdoch Travel is giving consumers the opportunity to be the first to experience UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya, a new adults-only, all-inclusive hotel designed to reflect each property’s locale and native culture.


Situated just south of Playa del Carmen in Riviera Maya, Mexico, UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya will debut in March 2017.

The adults-only, all-inclusive resort features 448 lavishly appointed guestrooms with predominantly ocean-views and an in-room mini bar stocked for guest preference with all the essentials to make-your-own cocktail, semi-private plunge pools on all first floor rooms and double hydro spa tub options, three expansive pools, a state-of-the-art wellness center, a spa outfitted with 18 luxe cabins, five globally-infused gourmet restaurants and six bars and lounges, including a cigar lounge and two swim up bars.

Signature guest experiences will include art to purchase from local artisans both in-room and throughout the property and the Esencia Studio located in the Esencia Wellness Center, where guests select their own personalized in-room amenities made with local ingredients. Food and beverage offerings will focus on creativity and emerging talent, including an annual rotating chef restaurant.

In addition, UNICO 20°87° will play host to experiential meetings and weddings, featuring an 11,600 sq. ft. ballroom, two breakout rooms and outdoor event space. Adopting a “no-itinerary-necessary” attitude, impromptu pop-up programming will include mezcal tastings and cocktail hour in a nearby Mayan village, to boozy pibil’s “pit roast” and full moon parties on the beach. Departing from the traditional all-inclusive, the UNICO 20°87° experience will encompass all food and beverages, select spa treatments and off-property excursions, unlimited golf and more.

Embracing the contemporary culture of the region, this inspirational all-inclusive resort allows vacationers a real, unfiltered experience in the backdrop of relaxed luxury with a unique “Host” concept, replacing the traditional butler service. UNICO 20°87° encourages guests to fully immerse themselves through exclusively developed private excursions, such as exploring the region’s lesser known alcoves with native hosts to dining at local tastemakers' preferred restaurants and bars. On-property culturally inspired activities include cooking classes taught by renowned regional chefs and other activities that cultivate a sense of spontaneity and discovery among guests.
